Welcome back! We would like to say a HUGE welcome back to everyone. We are very pleased that all of our children have settled into their new classes well and have enjoyed their first few days. We look forward to our journey through the year.
This is our 6’s having their song played on Heart radio, it was live to the North East on Wednesday during their leavers assembly.
We would like to say farewell to a few of our members of staff who are ready for new beginnings in September.
We would like to wish Mrs Brown and Mrs Cawthorn all of the happiness in the world as they are about to welcome a new baby into their families. We can’t wait for the arrival of your little one.
We would like to say a HUGE goodbye to Mrs McCoy and Miss as they are about to embark on a new adventure in their career. We wish them all the best.
We would like to say a very heartwarming goodbye to Mr Rushton and a HUGE thankyou for everything he has done for us at St. Aloysius. He will be a big miss but we know he will be truly amazing in his new career at Kuala Lumpur.
We would like to say a HUGE thankyou to Father Dave who has been such a loving, invaluable member of our community. We will miss seeing him around school and I know our children will certainly miss him.
Finally, we would like to say goodbye to Mr Watson, our Chair of Governors. We have been so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful Governor leading our school and he will certainly be missed by everybody in our school community.
This week, we celebrated the achievements of this academic year. The children received awards for Headteachers Award, English Writing Award, English Reading Award, Maths Reward and Sports Award.
We would like to say a HUGE congratulations to all of our award winners, and equally so, to all of our wonderful children at St. Aloysius. They are all superstars and make us incredibly proud.

We are delighted to announce that we have received the Gold Award in our School Games this year.
Last week, the children who had 200 entries in their Reading Journals had a fantastic day celebrating their wonderful achievement throughout the year.
They all split into three groups and participated in three activities. The first activity was fun on the iPads where they look at lots of different apps. The second activity was art where the children drew around their hand and decorated it. The final activity was a secret garden party where they all had s’mores and a fire!
We finished the celebration with a huge disco in the hall where the children had a boogie, a sing, did the conga and then had a nice refreshing drink to cool down.
Keep up the reading!
Last week was the last Secret Garden club for this term. All of the children have had a great time over the last few weeks helping in the garden. We finished the sessions by making pizza and melting marshmallows and chocolate in ice cream cones. They all discovered new skills and can’t wait for the sessions to start in September!
